Ingredients

  • 3 cups Almond Flour
  • 1 cup Low Carb Sweetener I prefer allulose
  • 3 tbsp. Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Cayenne
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3 Eggs
  • 4 Tbsp. Melted Butter
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Garnish Optional - Low Carb Chocolate for drizzle and additional spices sprinkled on if

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 325 F. Prep a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl whisk together the almond flour, low carb sweetener, cocoa powder, spices, xanthan gum, and baking powder.
  • Mix in the 3 eggs and the melted butter and combine until it forms one dough ball.
  • Place the dough ball onto the parchment paper baking sheet and pat the dough out into a large rectangle. It should be no more than 1 inch thick or it will not bake correctly. It should be about 4 inches wide and about 15 inches long. Bake for 30-35 minutes until set. It will be slightly softer in the middle but it should be harder to the touch. Let it cool about 15 minutes before slicing.
  • Slice the log into 24 pieces. I prefer to cut the log in half, and each half in half and so forth for even slicing. You should get 24 pieces. Place them back on a cooling rack on the baking sheet so the sides are facing up. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely for them to harden.
  • Store in an open container so they stay crispy.

Notes

Freeze the baked biscotti for up to 6 months for freshness!
